Brakes Keeping you safe
Your vehicle braking system is vital for your safety. At Central Tyre your safety is priority and we recommend regular brake safety checks. It is essential and a legal requirement that these are inspected regularly to ensure they are performing as intended. At Central Tyre our fully trained technicians are here to help and offer advice when you need it.
Like all components, your braking system will deteriorate over time, as this is gradual it makes it harder to notice a significant difference in the performance of the system. This is therefore why regular safety checks are advised.
Having your braking system regularly checked not only identifies problems it also saves you time and money by preventing damage to other components.
What signs should I look out for?
Due to the gradual deterioration in the braking system it can be hard to notice any significant problems but there are some indicative signs, these include:
- A grinding noise when you apply the brakes
- A pulling sensation to the left or right
- A continuous ‘pulsating’ from the pedal or a ‘spongy’ feeling when applying the brakes
If you notice any of these signs then it is important to have your vehicle inspected as soon as possible to reduce the risk of accident. You can drive in to any of our Central Tyre centres, there is no appointment necessary and our trained technicians will be more than happy to carry out a free inspection.
